"Historic Memory" with Damon Davis

“I spent a lot of time inside of my own head making my own world. Drawing, talking to myself a lot. I still do. That's just something that I developed. I spent a lot of time, I guess, honing the skills that I have now. There hasn't been a time in my life where I didn't know that I was going to be an artist.”
